Siler City Elementary School Families,
We are calling to remind you to ensure your kids are reading this summer and documenting their reading on our reading log. Please call the school if you need a new copy of the log. If we meet our school reading goal, somehow/someway I’ll allegedly be kissing a pig!
We are still awaiting Math EOG results for last year’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. We’re hopeful that they will arrive in mid-August. We will reach out when we receive them.
You may have noticed our new logo on our Facebook page. More information to come and versions of the new logo, but we wanted to remind you all that we loved our old logo and would have kept it had that been an option. It was a copyrighted image, however, and a change was necessary. Nevertheless, we’re super-excited with the fun we’ll have with our new Bulldog.
Note that over the next few weeks the Department of Transportation is going to be repairing Ellington Rd. in front of our main entrance. Because of this, please use the ‘exit’ entrance once work begins if you need to visit our school. Please be extra careful driving on campus as our traffic pattern will be different during construction.
Finally, the dates for Open House have been set. Please mark your calendars for our kindergarten Open House on August 21st from 5:00 to 6:00, and August 22nd for 1st through 5th graders from 5:00 to 6:30. We look forward to seeing you there.
Thanks, and hope you all are having a fantastic summer.
Dr. Larry Savage

Is your child struggling with learning their multiplication facts? Well, we are here to help!
Siler City Elementary is implementing a program called “Multiplication Masters” for students in grades 3-5. This is an incentive program which will encourage and reward students who demonstrate mastery for the 2 through the 9 multiplication tables. Students will receive small rewards for each level mastered, and students who achieve mastery of all facts will have their name and picture posted on the wall between the cafeteria and Art classrooms. These Multiplication Masters will also participate in a celebration at the end of the program! All participants will receive a certificate for mastery or participation. The program runs from March 4-April 12. A letter was sent home earlier by students explaining the program. Parents are asked to help their child practice these facts daily with flash cards, practice problems, games, etc. For those with internet access, a Symbaloo is available on the school website under the Student tab. Look for “Multiplication Masters.” This resource has several math websites that can be accessed for additional practice. We are excited about the program and hope to recognize many Multiplication Masters! Thank you for your help!
